Headword: Αἱμόνιος
Adler number: alphaiota,205
Translated headword: Haimonios, Haemonius
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
A Roman; wounded during the war of the Persians against the Athenians he [nevertheless] ran to Athens, went in to [see] the prytaneis,[1] and said to them 'Rejoice, we are rejoicing';[2] he then fell dead.
Greek Original:
Αἱμόνιος, Ῥωμαῖος, κατὰ τὸν Περσῶν πρὸς Ἀθηναίους πόλεμον τραυματίας δραμὼν εἰς Ἀθήνας καὶ εἰς τοὺς πρυτάνεις εἰσελθὼν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς: χαίρετε καὶ χαίρομεν. καὶ πεσὼν ἀπέθανεν.
Notes:
A ludicrous re-hashing of part of the story of Pheidippides/Philippides (phi 347). The present version follows the phraseology of Plutarch, Moralia 347C, where the name is either Thersippos or Eukles; Lucian, Pro lapsu inter salutandum 3 has Philippides; the basis for 'Haimonios' (a Roman!) is unclear.
[1] See generally pi 3000.
[2] So the transmitted text; but in the light of Lucian loc.cit. one should accept here, as in Plutarch loc.cit., Cobet's emendation to 'we are victorious' (νικῶμεν ).
